• I am a medical law specialist, advising and representing a range of healthcare providers in contentious and non-contentious matters, including inquests and Court of Protection proceedings. I have a special interest in mental health and mental capacity matters.

    I have experience of inquests and providing advice and support to healthcare providers on the coronial process. I advise NHS Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups in Court of Protection proceedings involving deprivation of liberty, best interests, care and welfare, and serious medical treatment decisions.

    I have advised healthcare providers on their regulatory responsibilities and their obligations under the Mental Health Act and Mental Capacity Act, giving guidance on mental capacity, best interests, lawfulness of detention and human rights issues.

    Prior to qualification, I worked as a healthcare assistant in an NHS inpatient psychiatric unit for children and adolescents, and as a care leader at a private residential home for adults with dementia. These experiences of delivering front line care have given me a unique perspective and passion for work around mental health and mental capacity. I am also a qualified Mental Health First Aider and am passionate about improving wellbeing and diversity in the workplace.
